Minister of Justice, Nasip Naco met with Mr. George P. Kent, Coordinator of Anticorruption Bureau of European Affairs, part of the Department of State.

Naco spoke about the progress of judicial reforms and in particular regarding the measures taken by the Ministry of Justice in the fight against corruption.

"I became a Minister at a time when there were only slogans about the fight against corruption, and when Albania was ranked last in reports that show the level of corruption in a country. In these reports, Albania ranked 116th alongside countries such as Nepal, Vietnam and Afghanistan. For me this was an unacceptable situation, "said Naco.

Referring to the situation, the Minister informed Mr. Kent that a first step in response to this situation was the involvement of the public in the fight against corruption, enabling citizens to report online corruption on each level.

"For the first time in the last 20 years we brought to justice judges charged with corruption, and this is a proof that the system is beginning to reflect and act", he said.

On his part z.Kent guaranteed that support the Department of State will continue to be focused on the justice system, aiming at fighting corruption and increasing transparency.

"We support you in your path towards Europe. The process of Albania's integration into European structures is closely linked to the progress of reforms in the judiciary", he said. /
